Over the summer, I played with some animation ideas and created these animated hockey cards. To add to the fun, I added a twist to each player's jersey. St. Louis and Kariya's are a mash up of of new and old where Hamilton's is a combination of the Bruins' and Flames' jerseys.
The inspiration came from the 1996/97 McDonald's Pinnacle hockey cards I collected as a kid. I remember pulling this exact Paul Kariya card and telling myself "I am now a hockey fan and this is my favourite team and player". Since then, I have always been a die hard Paul Kariya and Teemu Selanne fan.
Cool fact, when Gifpop was a Kickstarter I was a pledger! 1,063 backers pledged $35,894 to help bring Gifpop to life!
